What the idea is about:
For the union to work with the university to extend opening hours of libraries, especially closer to exam and due essay dates. With the aim of 24-hour access.
Why have you proposed it?:
Towards certain periods of the academic year the libraries can become rather busy and crowded, which can inhibit levels of work. An extension of hours available to study in should spread the distribution of students. It could also have beneficial aspects for students with other commitments, as they would be able to plan study time around commitments rather than the other way round.
There was some changes to this Idea, and the title now reads: Should the University work towards providing 24-hour library access?
What the Idea about had removed the words 'and due essay dates'
The idea was sent to Referendum, with the panel voting 5:8 (Yes:No).
